Intellectual Property: Fostering Competitiveness and Community


Sweeping changes are being made to the way that trademarks, patents and industrial designs are obtained and enforced in Canada.

This panel of practitioners will help you understand the changes and highlight what you need to know to protect your organization’s IP assets.
